Hi James,

Yes the mercurial tree is still the  place to get the source code. Regarding documentation,
we are still working on it but for now you can get some idea about the design from the following
two papers:
High Performance VMM-Bypass I/O in Virtual Machines (Usenix 06), and
A Case for High Performance Computing with Virtual Machines (ICS 06).
Although they are not yet available at the conference web sites, you can get tech reports from
the OSU web site here:

Is the mercurial tree still the best place to get the current sources?
What is the best source for documentation on this project?
